Drury Plaza Hotel Award

The Drury Plaza Hotel is located at 31 and 465 on the north side of Indianapolis.  Robert D. Young Construction, a Wall and Ceiling Contractor and proud ABC Member was chosen as the trade of choice for this four-star, 10 story, 303 room hotel.

The 600 linear foot exterior “eyebrow” cornice stands 13 feet higher than the roof and cantilevers 6 feet out from the top of the building.  All framing, welding, and sheathing was accomplished by RDY’s skilled tradesman at heights of 125 feet.

The interior lobby and amenity areas could be described as a maze of steel framed arches and curved drywall, resembling spokes on a wheel. Also included were 110 plaster domes and 3000 feet of plaster crown moldings.  Additionally, 500,000 square feet of cold formed framing, over 1 million square feet of drywall and 160,000 square feet of wall insulation, all installed impressively with no lost time injuries!


Award of Excellence in Merit Shop Construction

The City Way Project, consisting of six five story apartment buildings, 40,000 square feet of Podium level retail space, a four star hotel, and two above-ground parking garages, is one of the first privately owned and publicly financed projects to become an example of what can be accomplished by vision, solid direction, and team effort. This project took an orchestrated effort to complete on time with limited areas for equipment, supervised crews in multiple locations with different start and finish times, over 80 qualified tradesmen at its peak time, and with NO LOST TIME INJURIES.
Robert D. Young Construction, an ABC Contractor, is proud to have been chosen by the owner to finish the four star hotel over a unioncontractor and to have been a part of this successful, high profile project.

Project:
Butler Toyota Addition & Remodeling
East 96th Street and North Keystone Avenue
Indianapolis, INEntry Category:
Interior Wall Finishes

Description:
These new car showroom ceilings consisted of an open deck with independantly hung drywall features, or “clouds,” as they are commonly referred, curved on one or both ends in an upward or downward direction. This design also included track type lighting suspended from the face of the clouds to wash the surface with light. The complete design necessitated a perfect drywall finish to achieve a seamless appearance, accomplished by highly skilled technicians that take pride in their performance. A unique Midwest application, this effect achieved a one-of-a-kind futuristic atmosphere, complimenting the owner’s showroom products.
